Dr. Jones Prather’s lab focuses on building microbial chemical factories by harnessing the synthetic power of biology. Current efforts include the development of tools and methodologies for novel biosynthetic pathway design and the investigation of gene dosage effects on the physiology and productivity of engineered microbes. By fabricating molecules and compounds in novel ways, there is an opportunity to use the new materials in the creation of drugs and other products.
